1985 to 1986:   ITT/Fulbright Scholar at the University Erlangen Nurnberg in Germany

1981 to 1985:  Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry was at Washington & Lee University

 

Some of my honors as an undergrad:

Rhodes Scholarship State Finalist in 1985

James Lewis Howe Award in Chemistry in 1985

Phi Beta Kappa Sophomore Award in 1983

Stump Prize in German in 1983

Phi Lambda Upsilon

Phi Eta Sigma Freshmen Honor Society in 1982.

1980 to 1985:  During my senior year in high school and for the time I spent getting my B.S. in chemistry, I worked part time with Dr. Henry Schreiber in his research labs at the Virginia Military Institute.  The area of research was studies of the redox state distributions of transition metals in glass melts (of interest for nuclear waste immobilization, glass processing, and specialty glass manufacturing).  Check out some of the pictures of me working with the furnaces (back when I still had lots of hair on my head!!).  And yes, black and white photos give it that “old school” appearance…
